Mermaid with Trident
In the exhibition about Jorge Amado, an important brazilian literature writer, one can find various representations of this mytical orisha world. There’s a part destined to all of his translated books, and one specifically about the novel Dead Sea (Mar Morto). This is a masterpiece when it comes to Yemanja and her relationship with the people from the shore of Bahia. I find this book cover interesting because there is no verbal information; there’s only the presence of this mermaid, which is black and white, and is holding a trident.
